    How Green Dems Take Back Washington w/ Gina McCarthy

    How Green Dems Take Back Washington w/ Gina McCarthy

    When Gina McCarthy left her post as Obama’s EPA Administrator, she was ready to leave the sometimes grueling world of Washington politics behind. She went into academia. In 2018, she founded the Harvard Center for Climate, Health and the Global Environment (C-CHANGE).
    But after observing Trump’s chaotic first term from the sidelines, she realized she wasn’t content to sit this one out.
    Today, Gina is President of the Natural Resources Defense Council. There, she leads a multi-pronged approach to get climate champions elected into office — and elect Trump out.
    We got Gina’s perspective from the center of this historic fight to take back democracy and hit the reset button on national climate action.

    Making The Climate Movement Anti-Racist w/ Dr. Robert Bullard

    Making The Climate Movement Anti-Racist w/ Dr. Robert Bullard

    Sociologist and Environmental Justice Activist Dr. Robert Bullard came of age during the Civil Rights Movement. Back then, the conversation around how racism and environmentalism intersected hadn’t gained much traction.
    But Dr. Bullard began to make those connections through his research. He began to notice in cities across the country — from his hometown of Houston to Alabama to Louisiana — the ways in which black neighborhoods were made to bear the brunt of industrial pollution.
    Dr. Bullard has dedicated his career to fighting environmental racism, and he believes that fight may have reached a turning point.
    We spoke to him about why the Black Lives Matter demonstrations that have taken place over the past few weeks feel unique — even from other racial justice milestones he’s witnessed.
    And he gives us his take on what a President Biden could do to turn hopeful words into concrete action.

    How Do You Message Climate In This Turbulent Political Moment?

    How Do You Message Climate In This Turbulent Political Moment?

    At the start of 2020, Americans were becoming increasingly alarmed about climate change. 
    But then: A pandemic, record unemployment and now mass demonstrations over police violence and racism. The last time America faced such a turbulent political moment — during the Great Recession — public concern about climate change fell sharply. Now political winds are shifting again. Is climate still a political priority?
    The latest poll from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication gives us clues. We discuss the results with the program's director, Dr. Tony Leiserowitz.

    And in this political moment how will Joe Biden and Donald Trump's very different stances on climate play out with voters? We focus on a group that may play a big role in 2020: swing voters.

    We speak to Rich Thau, a messaging expert who has conducted focus groups with swing voters in battleground states.

    Silencing Science: New EPA Rule Suppresses Pollution Research

    Silencing Science: New EPA Rule Suppresses Pollution Research

    The Environmental Protection Agency hopes to finalize its new ‘Secret Science’ rule that would make it harder for lifesaving climate science to inform policy. If approved, it could be detrimental to studies that contain confidential data — including seminal public health findings related to air pollution.
    This is an especially critical area of research for black Americans who are dying in disproportionate numbers from Coronavirus, partially because of their exposure to harmful particles in the neighborhoods where they live.
    Michael Halpern and Professor Francesca Dominici tell us about the barrage of attacks on science that gained momentum under the Trump Administration but started decades before.

    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse on Climate's Stolen Decade

    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse on Climate's Stolen Decade

    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse on Climate's Stolen Decade Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse made his debut in Congress in 2007. Back then, hopes for congressional action on climate change were high, and multiple proposals for viable carbon legislation were on the table.
    But within the last decade, enthusiasm for bipartisan climate solutions has come to a crawl. Corporate dollars have often set the agenda. In March, Marathon Petroleum and other oil and gas companies made out with millions of dollars in tax subsidies and debt relief.
    One of the Senate's leading voices on climate tells how the CARES Act bailout of the oil companies came to pass. He shares his inside view of the oil and gas industry's capture of the Republican Party, Obama's premature surrender on climate and why he thinks we’re finally ready for meaningful action on climate.
